El Museo del Barrio is delighted to reopen its doors with Taller Boricua: A Political Print Shop in New York, the first monograph exhibition in three decades about the East Harlem-based Nuyorican collective workshop and alternative space. Curated by Rodrigo Moura, the exhibition, comprised of more than 200 works, draws inspiration from the organization’s role as a focal point for the affirmation of identity as it relates to artistic production in the diaspora, as well as its connections with non-Western, African and Taíno sources.
In addition, we encourage everyone to stay connected with the Museum through El Museo en tu Casa, our online bilingual initiative. For more information, please visit www.elmuseo.org and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @elmuseo.
